Which horror film did YOU choose as the best of 2016?

All this week we have been celebrating the end of 2016 by looking back at our favorite horror films released in the past twelve months, but rather than simply tell you what we thought of the year in horror, we wanted to also open up the floor to you awesome readers. Last week we launched a poll designed to let YOU pick the best horror movies of 2016, and now that it’s been open for a full week and voting has been closed, we’re here to share the results. We’re happy to report that 5,062 of you guys and girls voted, and we thank each and every one of you for taking the time.

So give yourselves a pat on the back before we proceed.

THE WITCH

1. THE WITCH – 1,469 VOTES

Okay. So let’s cut right to the chase: the best horror movie released in 2016, as chosen by the Bloody Disgusting readers. You chose The Witch as THE standout highlight of 2016, and we’re not at all surprised that a whopping 1,469 of you placed votes for it. I’m not sure there’s a single year-end ‘best of’ list that Robert Eggers’ incredible directorial debut is not on, and there’s a damn good reason for that. The Witch is horror filmmaking at its finest, accomplished and masterful on every conceivable level. So kudos to you for coming out the gate with a masterpiece, Mr. Eggers.

As for the rest of the reader-chosen Top 10 of 2016, let’s not wait any longer…
